52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 44

Photobucket

The annual popping up of
Daffodil bulbs in my yard
.

It happens every single year at this time.
Just after the last of the Christmas decorations

are put in storage until next year.


When I feel a bit gloomy

because the holidays are over,

I step out onto my porch and low and behold,

there they are once again...

Clumps of Dafoldil stalks
sprout up
through old fallen leaves
and I know that spring
is just around the corner.


They looks so sweet and hopeful,
like dear old friends
who are about to arrive
for a visit.

When they bloom, for sure they will make you happier. :)

How nice! I won't see daffodils for a few more months here :(. But I do love it when they start popping out of the ground :)

These are gorgeous. We're still waiting for ours, but I breath a sigh of relief when I see them. :)

Such a pretty post. I love those flowers.

Leigh- that is so EXCITING! I would be beside myself if I had daffodils coming up like that. Can't wait to see more of them in the coming weeks.

That is very awesome.

Sarah said...

I love when our daffodils pop! Although here in Chicago, I have to wait a bit longer to see them. :)

AJ said...

Haven't seen daffodils yet...can't wait, yours are so pretty!

Sue said...

I had no idea they would come up so early every year. I was thinking at first that it was just THIS year because of the crazy weather.

That must be an even nicer surprise to see them when you've had a hard winter...

=)

Heidi said...

These photos make me happy. Yep.

I love Daffodils.. it is still a bit early here for them but they will be popping up soon.

Kim Stevens said...

Ya know, every year I want to plant them and forget! Since I live in a warmer climate I can't plant tulips, well I could but then I have to have them in my refigerator for several months! haha It is exciting to know that spring is around the corner!!

Nessa Bixler said...

Oh wow... we will be waiting a little while longer for new plants - but how exciting!

Mock-Turtle said...

I have linked up to a photo of my baby boy, Jack, who makes me insanely happy!

Kristy LifenReflection said...

Daffodils already, wow!

So full of hope and spring to come! Beautiful photos as always.

Andrea said...

and here I am wishing for decent snow!

Mother Theresa said...

In January? Really? Wow, they don't come out that early here. Lucky!

Creating adventure portraits that star my little son makes me very happy!
